There was a long line out to the parking lot when we arrived. It took about 40 minutes before we were seated with our food and it was worth it. I ordered sausage, brisket, and a few ribs. The sausage was good and on the spicy side without being too hot. The brisket was my favorite-moist, tender and smokey flavor.... More

As you stand in line, there is a sig that says, "Caution, your eyes may be bigger than your stomach." This sign hit the nail on the head as sat down and realized I had way too much food on my plate. Fat Matt's in Atlanta is the number BBQ joint anywhere for their BBQ sauce and hole in the... More

How to feel like a local in Texas, visit where the locals eat. This place was packed, service was very quick and excellent value. Great food, great selection available.

Had dinner with a colleague last night. Firs, you have to get there early. The experience starts when you stand on the smoky patio watching meat being cooked and served. I had brisket, chicken poppers, and ribs. This was truly excellent Texas BBQ. Don't miss the jalapeño creamed corn, frankly I'd have made a meal out of that. This one... More

Whoa! Hard Eight is the definition of Texas BBQ. Split a pound of brisket with my Liebling. The meat was fantastic. Lots of different choices that I can't wait to try. Added some fantastic fries and some jalapeño creamed corn on the side. Added some of the signature pepper sauce to the BBQ sauce to kick it up a notch... More

Well, if you love meat, then you will love the Hard Eight. This is the Texas we see on TV, for all us non Texanas. Make sure you have the pulled pork. I'm not a big meat eater, but this day I wish I would have ad a bigger stomach. By the way, their prices are very reasonable per pound.... More

I took my grandson to eat here along with his father in April 2015. There was a long line out the door as this place is really good. It took a while to get our food, but it was worth the wait. Great atmosphere and great food!

This place has the greatest brisket. Not to mention sausage, shrimp and ribs. Everything is casual Texas style. We were visiting our daughter in Texas and loved everything about it. Reasonable prices for so much good food.

We dropped by Hard 8 on the spur of the moment to pick up barbecue for 10. This popular restaurant has a separate counter for placing to-go orders and we were able to fill our order within 15 minutes on a busy Saturday. We had brisket, both regular and jalapeno sausage, and pork ribs. All were great. We also ordered... More
